Blogger winners

I'm so sorry:) I've been sick my child has been sick. Your goodies have been sitting here waiting to be mailed out. I'll get them out first thing Friday. Usually I'm right on top of that kind of thing.

holiday cards

Well my baking mojo was off today, but boy was I in the mood to make cards.

finally feeling better

Hi all! My household has not been well:( I had something for a few days, then my middle son had an 102 temp for 4 days. He ended up having strep/ear infection. Anyway. I haven't been in the mood to do anything. I hadn't even done holiday baking yet. Yes, I know it's Christmas Eve! Usually we make cookies and fudge. Lots and lots of fudge.
My baking mojo must be off. I ruined the fudge, simply by not properly reading the directions. I tried to salvage it and got a very nice boiling sugar burn. Then I tried making peanut brittle. Here's the picture of that attempt! This is after I let the pan cool for a bit before I attempted to throw it out. Yeah, not having that. I didn't make cookies I made cupcakes instead. Thank goodness they turned out!

7,000 hits.......Time for some Blog Candy!!

I''m giving away a mystery candy. All you need to do is..... leave me a comment with a link to your blog then, put a link on your blog letting others now about my candy. A random name will be drawn December 13th.

I'm ALSO giving a bonus blog candy! The first blogger to tell me why I picked the 13th get's a little something also. I'll give hints as the days go on if no one is getting it.

Hint #1. December has nothing to do with it.

50/50 split.

Well we didn't have a winner in the Cheese-it vs. Cheese-Nip battle. It was a 50/50 split. Since it's my blog I'm going to just say the Cheese Nips win!! Yippie:) LOL! Thank you to everyone who voted. Our family dispute will live on I guess.

Marjorie's blog candy sketch challenge

This is my entry for Marjorie's Blog candy sketch challenge. I used CTMH paper, the boots and sentiment are Bella. I love the boots! You can't tell in the picture but I put a thin layer of white glitter under the boots to look like snow.

Lucky 13?

No, I did not make all 13 cards in one day:)
I posted them 3 different times because they wouldn't all upload to blogger at the same time.

I left a few sentiment spots blank for a reason. I hate having a cute card with the wrong phrase on it. This way I'll have a few more options with my cards. All 4 of these cards and a few others that I posted were made with scraps that I won from my Sbs12 sister Dawn. Thanks Dawn!

Yippie for me!!

I just wanted to say Yippie for me!!! I dropped another pant size:) I've NEVER been in this size jean. Yes, I did do a little dance in the department store dressing room:) I did however hold back the urge to scream and jump up and down.
I'm not sure what theme I'm going to make the pirate card:) I also do not know how I made my comments to be underlined.

wedding pictures

Well the last of our weddings is over. This was my brothers wedding. We had so much fun. Although, I was very sad the next morning to find that I hardly took any pictures.
The wedding was very nice and the reception was super fun. The

only thing that went wrong was the flowers. A friend of the family did all the flowers, and didn't do at all what the bride asked for. But everything else turned out great. My kids had a blast, they danced the whole night. Well we all danced the whole night. Even my husband.
